New Addition to Screen Porch

I have been looking at antique shops for years and then on Etsy and eBay for this primitive hutch that I spotted years ago in Flea Markets Gardens, a magazine (year unknown).  I've been carrying around this torn out page forever.

Finally I found a Pennsylvania cabinet maker on eBay and made the purchase in early April.  It's built to order so Tuesday it finally came.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.  

It's a nice addition to the porch and provides more display space and storage than the shelf that was there since we moved in almost 10 years ago.  The shelf is now in my garden shed holding pots I'm not currently using.  Pictured on the deck before it made that move.

My first attempt at filling the shelves with decorations.
